"I do look pretty in pink, don't you think?" Jessica has an obsession with the colour pink. It is everywhere - her clothes, stationery, photo frames ...

Transcript

"I'm Jessica Jones. A regular 14 year old but with a very big obsession. I'm in love with the colour pink. I wear pink every day, unless it's in the wash. Then out comes my only blue top. I own many different outfits...all pink of course! Vest tops, tank tops, T Shirts and glittery tops; boob tubes, dresses, skirts, trousers...even shoes! After all, I do look pretty in pink, don't you think?

I'm absolutely mad on the colour pink! It's so girly, just like me. I don't mind what shades of pink either. My vibrant, striking 70s style bowling bag is a favourite and then there's my soft, pastel, fluffy photo frame.

I'm well known for my pink obsession. For my 14th birthday, my friends had no problems in buying presents. But they all think I'm absolutely barmy! "It's just a phase" they told me...that was three years ago!

I think my mum must have had a little fetish for pink too...look at the way she dressed me when I was little! This obsession has completely and utterly taken over my life. Everything I own is a big pink explosion. Make up, jewellery, belts and shoes; photo frames, bags, stationery and bobbles. The list is endless!

Pink is a pretty feminine colour, it's also a bit magical. This would explain why I love make-believe and all things nice.

My greatest dream - my greatest wish - is to live in a fairy castle. Why? It's pink, of course!"

An interview with the author

Please tell us a little about yourself.
I'm Jessica Jones and I'm 14 years old. I love my school. I really enjoy playing my clarinet, both on my own and in the woodwind band. My story is about my obsession with the colour pink. About what I like about the colour and all the things that are pink.

Why did you choose to tell this particular story?
I chose to tell this story as I love the colour and wanted to show just how much I love it!

What did you find most rewarding about the workshop?
I really enjoyed using the different software available as it was new and exciting. Also, seeing my film developing in front of my eyes was something that I found enjoyable.

This digital story was made at a school workshop run in collaboration with Blast.
